Information / FAQ
What is the Vita Player Magazine?
Many may be asking why are we releasing a new PS Vita magazine now after the console has ceased production and that games are no longer being developed. Well, for us, we felt that this is the perfect time for us to release the Vita Player Magazine. Rather than focusing on news as traditional magazines do, each issue of the magazine is going to focus on a single theme. Some will look at a particular genre of games, others may specialise in a particular software publisher but regardless there will be a common theme throughout.
What will be in each issue?
Each issue will contain at least 48 pages of game reviews, articles, interviews and features. Some of the content will be revised reprints from the website but by having an overarching theme we will have all the content in one place making it easier to read. It will also include some advertising from publishers, developers and companies who may be of interest to readers.
How much will it cost?
This will be available as a FREE download directly from this page as a DRM-free PDF file. We’ll announce when each issue is released here on the website and on our social media channels so you’ll know when each issue becomes available.
Will there be any competitions?
Absolutely! We will be running regular competitions in most issues to win a great selection of prizes. In addition, we will have a Reader’s Letters Page with a mystery Vita game for the Star Letter in each issue. We’ll also have prizes on offer for the best reader review or article submitted to each issue as well!
Can I get involved?
Of course! We’re always looking for writers to be a part of the magazine. Whether you want to submit a review, article, or just have ideas or suggestions we’d love to hear from you. We’ll also be running polls and surveys on our Twitter account that you can take part in that will feed into articles in each issue.
Can my business advertise with you?
Absolutely. We have three different rates for advertising. A standard page is £50, the inside front cover is £75 and the back page is £100. To book any of these, get in touch with us using our Contact Page.
